FIA World Endurance Championship - 7: things in life are moving a bit in different directions so I don't have as much time to follow as usual
European Le Mans Series - 7 - ditto
Michelin Le Mans Cup - 4 - only ever followed results and Road to Le Mans from trackside
Asian Le Mans Series - 5 - results only frankly
Asian Le Mans Sprint Cup - 3 - huh? is this a thing?

Spa 6 Hours (2018-19) - 7 - same grade as the championship
Le Mans 24 Hours (2018-19) - 10 - as I'll be trackside for both
Silverstone 6 Hours (2018) - 7 - same as the championship
Fuji 6 Hours (2018) - 7 - same as the championship
Shanghai 6 Hours (2018) - 7 - same as the championship
Sebring 1500 Miles (2019) - 8 - the 12 Hour is still the king there, but a night-to-day race will be interesting

LM P1 - 8 - actually make the grade as many entries as there will be for Le Mans. If not, I just want to see a Toyota win at the 24 Hours.
LM P2 - 8 - tight-enough class to poke interest
LM P3 - 7 -
LM GTE-PRO - 9 - add BMW to the current mix and it'll just guarantee extra manicness. If Lamborghini and McLaren join, it'll be insane. Seriously, best crowdpleaser moment at Le Mans this year from the grandstands was the GTE-Pro last-lap pass for the lead.
LM GTE-AM - 7

Grading P3 and GTE-Am at 7 because I want those classes to stick around if I ever get enough money and practice to end up somehow getting a RTLM or Le Mans drive. Seriously, wouldn't we all try for a drive in one of those two classes if we had those two things? I know I would, but I'm realistic enough to know I'll never be talented enough to be ranked more than a Bronze, so those two classes would be my only hope. And since I have that dream, who am I to say that others aren't allowed to have it by killing those classes?

I love the WEC, LMP1 and GTE pro. I look forward to each race more than any other. I have little to no interest in the regional series. I like the WEC because it's an FIA recognized championship and that's where (a) manufacturer(s) competes in P1. I don't mind LMP2 but I don't pay much attention to it as they all run the same engine and as of now the same chassis. If there were more variety I would rate it higher. Maybe that changes next year with everyone but Oreca getting a joker upgrade. I'm a little biased though, because Toyota is obviously my favorite brand and that's where they compete for the win. But I have always like Le Mans and endurance racing. I remember the first time watching it was in 98, but could only catch glimpses of the race on U.S. TV. I don't think losing Porsche is that bad. I think it's given rise to 4 or 5 other teams who wouldn't be talked about if they stayed.

I just hope I will be able to watch all the WEC races. I can do with the replays for other series like IMSA or ELMS, since they put up the whole race for FREE after 2-3 days.

For me the best part of the WEC was gone before it even started: the ILMC. Never been a fan of WEC's desire to be a F1 clone by going to sterile, low atmosphere tracks, setting low entry caps and standardizing many aspects of the series. So I guess I'm very much in the same boat as Chiana here but probably not as enthusiastic as him as the ACO more or less continues on its chosen path.

Anyways, I'm more of an IMSA focused person these days, the presence of many old school tracks is a major attraction over WEC's parking lot fetish so the return to Sebring is huge!

Here's hoping the new 2020 (or whenever) P1 rules will benefit both sanctioning bodies and provide more harmony than conflict - the sport would certainly prosper as a result.

The results are out from the global fan survey run by Motorsport network.
They had fans from 179 countries of which 43% were under the age of 35.
Fans said they preffered a 8 to 10 race calender and the favor tracks were LeMans, Spa, Silverstone, Nurburgring, Sebring and Fuji.

I understand your frustration, but you can't place all the blame on the WEC for choosing these tracks when the FIA stipulates that only certain ones can be used thanks to the speeds of the lmp1's and the multiclass nature of the series. Does IMSA run an FIA sanctioned championship? If not, they may not have to worry about that. But the WEC does since it wants to keep that status. I think places like Silverstone and Fuji have a lot of character because of where they are and their storied history, not to mention at Fuji you get the backdrop of one of the most beautiful mountains in the world! Compared to somewhere like Sebring it's picturesque, but since Sebring has maintained it's 'purity' it's seen as a lot more appealing to many. That's my take on it at least. I don't like acres of paved run off, but it's hard to find a track to run a world championship with these cars' speeds without it.
